‘Wrapped Around Your Finger’ was the second single off The Police’s fifth, final and most successful album Synchronicity. Written by Sting, it was never going to be one of Andy Summers’s favourite tracks, but he still got to play around with his trademark effects, even when playing second fiddle.

The Police

A last bit of nostalgia before we kick on with things next week… I’ve been relistening to quite a bit of Radiohead’s In Rainbows this week. It has struck me how much the guitar work on ‘Reckoner’ is like Andy Summers’ elaborate playing on ‘Bring On the Night’. The song featured on The Police’s 1979 long player Reggatta De Blanc. Andy Summers – there’s a name from the past. Have a great weekend.
